LABS : Leonardo ABstracts Service

LABS is a comprehensive database of abstracts of Ph.d, Masters and MFA theses in the emerging intersection between art, science and technology. Persons who have received advanced degress in arts (visual, sound, performing, text), computer sciences, the sciences and/or technology which in some way investigate philosophical, historical, critical or applications of science or technology to the arts are invited to submit an abstract of their thesis for publication consideration in this database.

The LABS Peer Reviewers for 2013-2014:

The English abstracts will be placed on-line at Pomona College, Claremont, California,  so that interested persons can access them at no cost. An international Peer Review Panel (PRP) made up of academics and artists will review the abstracts; the PRP is chaired by Emerita Professor Sheila Pinkel of Pomona College. In addition to being published in the database, a selection of Abstracts selected by this panel for their special relevance will be published quarterly in Leonardo Electronic Almanac (LEA), Leonardo's peer reviewed e-journal, and authors of abstracts most highly ranked by the panel will also be invited to submit an article for publication consideration in Leonardo Journal. Authors of theses interested in having their thesis abstract considered for publication should fill out the Thesis Abstract Submittal form.

For any changes to your abstract, email ITG with the LABS number and changes to be made to the record.
